The third full-length release titled “Folk Songs Jazz Journeys” from storyteller Alex Martin. His new eleven-song release begins with the acoustic, Latin-flair of “Postal de Bata” and his quiet, bluesy version of “Wayfaring Stranger,” featuring Maya Rogers on vocals. He keeps the worldly sounds flowing with island jazz of “Asa Branca” and “Triangulo,” which are both highlighted by the sweet vocal work of Elin Melgarejo. Alex’s skills on the guitar shine on the traditional Scottish tale of “I Once Loved A Lass,” before wrapping up his new album with the exotic sounding jazz of “Laride” and “Estamos aqui para colaborar.”

Since 1988 Kari-On Productions has helped artists get an even footing in the industry through jazz promotion in the genres of Jazz, World & Latin Jazz through Jazz Radio and Publicity. Why do we do both, because they compliment each other, and we care about fiscal longevity for the artist.
